Raiders cut Matt Flynn

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Matt Flynn, the quarterback acquired by the Raiders in a trade with the Seahawks this offseason, has been released, according to Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated.

Although the Raiders traded for Flynn with the expectation that he would be their starter this season, he was beaten out in training camp and the preseason by Terrelle Pryor. When Pryor missed a game this season with a concussion, Flynn played so badly that he was demoted from second to third on the depth chart after Pryor returned. And now Flynn isn’t on the Raiders’ depth chart at all.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders also cut fifth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson before the start of the season. Former Penn State QB Matt McGloin is now the Raiders QB2 behind Prior. McGloin was impressive enough in the offseason that this also likely played into the decision to release Flynn. Look for the Raiders to sign a free agent QB at some point. The story mentions Green Bay could be a landing spot for Flynn.

Due to baseball playoffs, Raiders Oct. 6 home game vs. Chargers has been switched from 4:25 pm ET to 11:35 pm ET.

Fantasy Impact:

It's going to put in question Darren McFadden and Terrelle Pryor for next week. While Pryor seems more likely to play, at this point you could be risking points if their statuses aren't clearer heading toward Sunday.

Raiders HC Dennis Allen said team wanted to exercise extreme caution with QB Terrelle Pryor, so held him out. Feels good about him playing next week.

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor was set to start but reports said he started to feel symptoms again leading up to the game so that team went with backup Matt Flynn, who struggled in a loss to Washington.

Friday, September 27, 2013, 7:19pm

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 4. Adam Schefter reported that Pryor is unlikely to play against the Redskins, though HC Dennis Allen said on Friday that Pryor just has to pass one more test on Saturday to play, so hopefully we'll have more clarity tomorrow. Matt Flynn would be a high-risk Sneaky Start against a very shaky Redskins pass defense. If he can play, Pryor would be a top 12 QB given the matchup.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor, who suffered a concussion Monday night, is unlikely to play Sunday vs. Washington, per sources.

Fantasy Impact:

Matt Flynn is likely to get the start. He has a great matchup against the Redskins, but would be a risky play as a QB2-type.

Thursday, September 26, 2013, 6:52pm

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Adam Schefter is reporting that Pryor is unlikely to play against the Redskins. Matt Flynn would be a Sneaky Start against a very shaky pass defense.

Wednesday, September 25, 2013, 7:30pm

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) did not practice Wednesday. Pryor has not yet been cleared for practice, but he has been cleared for physical activity. It's a good sign that he'll be out there against the Redskins on Sunday. He'd be a top 12 QB given the matchup.

Terrelle Pryor suffers concussion

Tuesday, September 24, 2013, 10:01am

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor left the game early after taking a big hit. It turns out that big hit resulted in a concussion.

Pryor took a massive hit on a designed quarterback run as he was sandwiched by a pair of Broncos defenders. He stayed on the ground for a bit while the officials determined if the Raiders quarterback fumbled the ball.

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor later tweeted that he didn't remember taking the hit, which is not a good sign. But he added that he feels great. It's bad timing for the Raiders on a short week with Washington up next. Not to mention, he played pretty well in a tough matchup against the Broncos. Pryor will now have to pass NFL protocol before being able to go in Week 4. Matt Flynn is the backup and would get the start. Often associated with a weak arm, Flynn gets a pretty good matchup against the Skins at least, who have been torched by opposing defenses. He's at best a low-end QB2 option.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie spoke with seven Bay Area-based reporters at the team's headquarters in a half-hour roundtable chat and broached topics ranging from Terrelle Pryor to team expectations to pending free agents to the need for the Raiders to get the ball more to playmaking fullback Marcel Reece.

Fantasy Impact:

Reece is a productive gadget player but he only has three touches in two games. For a team that is going to have trouble moving the ball, the Raiders would be wise to utilize Reece more.

Raiders name Terrelle Pryor starter Week 2

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said that Terrelle Pryor will start at quarterback Sunday against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor was one of just two 100-plus yard rushers on Sunday in Week 1 (the other was Shane Vereen). He's going to make his share of mistakes, but there's certainly upside with the rushing yardage and potential rushing TDs. He's not a QB1 option but it could get pretty tempting to plug him in a QB2 spot or use him as a backup, or even in certain matchups.
